Shaw + Smith

Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Tasting at Shaw and Smith yesterday. They have been making this cuvée for 29 years and one of the earliest adopters of the style. Today it represents 50% of the sales and is the goose that laid the golden egg. Shows passion fruit and pink grapefruit on nose and palate. I’m not normally a fan of SB but it is hard not to love this. Lifted, refreshing and a winner. — 3 months ago

CRFT Wines

Arranmore Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

In the bigger end of the Pinot spectrum, I really like this. Dark fruited, 25% whole bunch, french oak with a lovely dusky crimson/ruby colour. Great fruit density and concentration, spiced, lovely acidity and tannins with a long savoury finish. — 2 months ago

Casa Emma

Vignalparco Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

A wine I affectionately refer to as the “Goose Poop Wine”. This is a rather unique Chianti Classico in the Casa Emma line-up. The “Vignalparco” comes from a single 5-acre vineyard planted to Sangiovese that is solely managed by geese. That’s right, geese. In fact, the 2015 vintage marked the first year in which no mechanical vehicle of any kind even entered the vineyard! The geese eat insects and control weeds and grass and, of course, subsequently fertilize the vineyard.

This bottle was a pop and pour, served with our meal of pasta and sausage (a tomato-based sauce spiced with saffron). A striking deep ruby color with some noticeable sediment but nothing outrageous. Medium plus intensity. Red cherry fruit, underbrush, tomato leaf, an iron-rich damp earth thing on the nose. On the palate, tart cherry, almond skin, black lime (often used in Middle Eastern cuisine), and an almost sanguine-like character. Fine tannin; medium-plus acid; a long dry and satisfying finish. This paired fabulously with our meal and, compared with their standard Chianti Classico Riserva, a noticeably different expression of the terroir.
